Bonnie blocks

Blue Stained glass block

I have been doing my stint involving lots of hand sewing. I've finished the  stained glass block from Lynne Edwards' book in blue but this design does seem suitable for my Doe fabric so I used an applique design from a recent magazine. I made my bias strips using bias bars then ironed Steam-a-Seam 1/4" fusible to the back and ironed it into place then handstitched to secure.

Pieces in place, temporarily secured with pritt stick and
Roxanne's fabric glue.

I've also pieced a new Honey Bee base to replace the one in my last post. It'll have dark wings. I've drawn  round templates on fabrics to make a Leila's Fan block and drafted a 12" schoolhouse.
